Saturday, July 31, 2010

12:12pm

Performed restriction digest using New England Bioworks (NEB) protocol for C1 plasmid backbone and part B0015. (No prior Ethanol Precipitation, DPN1 Digest, or PCR Cleanup was performed on the C1 plasmid backbone prior to the execution of this protocol.)
Changes to protocol:
1:00pm When pipetting restriction enzymes may have dipped tip in too far, possibly resulting in too much restriction enzyme and possible "star effect".
1:05pm Ran initial PCR 37°C incubation for 22 minutes rather than normal 15 minutes.

2:25pm

Ligation of the aforementioned C1 plasmid backbone and part B0015 (after completed restriction digest).

3:49pm

PCR amplification of the ligate product of the previous C1 and B0015 ligation. PCR incubation started at 3:49pm. (C1+B0015 ligate are being amplified for use in gel electrophoresis.)
